    The other interesting thing is, for all his quirks, he has been happily married to the same person since 1985 - soft-core movie actress Harlee McBride. I feel a certain quasi kinship with a fellow hatchet-faced, big-nosed guy who married a woman way out of his league.

    Step 1. Invite a guy with his sense of humor on your show

    Step 2.Be surprised when he makes the most off color remarks possible.

    Eh. I just don't think this is the kinda thing anyone can afford to have a double standard about. Ever.

    That said, I hate 99% of Fox so I would've laughed.

    I heard him give his explanation for his behavior on TMZs show. He sounded slightly insane and went off on Harvey for a bit before saying he was just openly mocking Hitler to take the power and fear away. It made no sense whatsoever.

    Thanks, I wasn't sure and didn't remember hearing anything about it. He certainly looked thin and kind of unwell.

    I think he or the writers of Homicide/SVU purposely wrote a lot of him into the Munch character iirc.

    OMG, overreact much! He was clearly joking.

    I've loved Belzer since his Homicide days and let's face it, considering the subject matter on SVU the "banged in the ass" comment wasn't that out there.

    He does look pretty bad but then again the man is 69 years old and he's always been superthin. I like to think that he has been appearing less on SVU because he can't be bothered and would rather spend time in France and get an easy paycheck (which sucks cause Munch is awesome!) but he often looks frail or limps in the later seasons of SVU and I also remember listening to one show he did with Howard Stern about having pulled from one event and he kept saying he had a good reason and Stern was giving him a hard time because it had been something about an animal charity and the Belz is deep into that. So they go to commercial and Belzer told Stern exactly what this was about but he didn't want it out and Stern sounded really bad totally apologising, he almost sounded on the verge of tears. Could be bs, of course but there is probably something going on. Could be the cancer again, who knows.

    I really don't think there is anything with him mentally, the most recent stuff I have seen him do as himself were Richard Belzer's conversations available on Youtube and he's very coherent there, he talks just about as much as the people he interviews, lol.

    And that concludes my Belzerfesto. Thank you!

    But those things don't make him a rude a-hole...

    I heard he has some form of cancer, but can't confirm it.
